Holiday packing

My summer holiday is booked! I still have to wait a little while but I'm already dreaming about the holiday wardrobe I am going to wear on sunny beaches and poolside in quiet villas. Here's what I'd like to pack: sunglasses by The Row, straw hat by & other stories, Caudalie facial spray, Talitha kaftan dress, diamond bracelets by Vanessa Tugendhaft, sandals by Ancient Greek Sandals, and mirror clutch by Silvia Gattin.

Crazy in love: my new Proenza Schouler baby

I had a VERY exciting Friday! What did Man Repeller say about the deliveries of dreams? I completely agree. I had been dreaming about the Proenza Schouler PS1 wallet on a chain for quite a while (it's the perfect mini version of my everyday favourite black PS1). It was delivered in a beautiful, adorned box straight from Paris. To be precise: straight from Monnier Frères. If you do not know this online store yet, you should definitely check it out. It is specialising in designer accessories - bags, small leather goods, jewellery, sunglasses ... All those little things that make the difference. The PS1 wallet on a chain is sold out now, but they have many other Proenza Schouler bags (among many others). 
And, by the way, the summer sale is still on.

Instagram diary

Sorry it's been so quiet over here lately. It seems like I have either too much work to do or it feels too hot to do anything - or both. So here's a little Instagram diary - that's the least I can do, isn't it. Thank you, The Locals, for the little streetstyle snapshot from Berlin Fashion Week. What you see on the other photos: my living room (I added the Micky Mouse illustration which I got in Berlin), a lift selfie, a balcony dinner over at my friend Julia's, my dino necklace from Malaikaraiss, a rooftop party celebrating the new label Lies in Layers

Fashion Week: what I wore

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen my photos and videos from Berlin Fashion Week. I had a great time running around Berlin with my colleague Lisa - we made a video, which I will share with you asap. Here's what I wore on day 2 of fashion week: a sweater by COS which I have had for years, a silk cami dress by Asos (similar here), Susanna boots by Chloé and Boy bag by Chanel. The sunglasses are by Illesteva.

L'eau d'été

When I was younger I used to think eau de toilette or eau de cologne was nothing but an inferior version of perfume. After all it's cheaper, has less oils and thus the scent lasts shorter. How wrong I was (the ignorance of youth!). Thankfully with age sometimes comes a little bit of wisdom, so now I know that eau de cologne is simply perfect for summer. When it's warmer and you want to wear light, airy scents anyway what's more fitting than an eau de cologne?
I'm so happy that my favourite scent, Byredo's Gypsy Water, comes in a cologne version, too. <3
